PEDESTAL STEM GLASSES

Pedestal stem drinking glasses (sometimes known as panel stems or Silesian stems in the probably mistaken belief that this is from where they originated) were briefly in fashion during the early to mid eighteenth century, but never really attained the popularity of other forms.  This was in direct contrast to their popularity for use in making sweetmeat glasses and salvers where they were used for a number of decades to good effect.  Made in a mould, the early pedestal stem glasses had four sides but too easily showed the impurities in the glass, and manufacture quickly moved onto six and then eight sided stems.   The sweetmeat or sucket glass shown on the right has a double ogee bowl sitting on an eight sided pedestal stem and a domed foot.
